FedEx package handler Geddy Kramer, 19, shot and wounded six people the morning of April 29, 2014, at a FedEx package and delivery facility in Kennesaw, Georgia, before turning a gun on himself. In a handwritten message later found in his car, Kramer said that his "first choice for my massacre would start with anyone who sold me drugs and a few others." He added that he'd tried "to get help from ...a therapist, but I've also medicated with several types of drugs, most of which were illegal."
